In times of great tragedy and grief, we often turn to poetry to assure us that we are not alone, that others are feeling the same sadness and grief. Graphic design, like poetry, uses metaphors to help heal, to express the unfathomable grief that the Las Vegas community is experiencing, in the wake of one of the deadliest mass shootings in modern history. This poster, featuring a cowboy boot rising above the Las Vegas skyline represents the peaceful country music fans who attended the Route 91 Harvest Festival to celebrate the universal language of music. The cowboy boot is adorned with the symbols of the American flag, with a field of stars to honor those who lost their lives in a horrific rain of bullets, the alternating bands of red and white represent those who were injured. The lights gleaming upward represent the kindness and bravery of those who exemplified the best of humanity in the dark shadow of hatred and malice. The stars in the heaven represents the glimmer of hope that exists for a future without hatred and violence.
